My Reviews

Bookmarks Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When used with Fastest Search, after opening a new tab (Ctrl + t), cursor is placed at the end of chrome://bookmarks/content/bookmarks.htmlthe way it should be is that the whole address is selected (like when you click on the bar once) Probably not this addon's fault

List All Tabs Menu

keyboard navigation needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is irreplaceable.
I think everyone (who uses keyboard) would love this addon if keyboard navigation worked:
That is: to switch matching tabs by means of the keyboard arrow keys. Then press ESC to close the menu.

As it is now, the addon is buggy.
The Down arrow key does not switch to the first matching tab (like the location bar would do with a bookmark or history entry). But the Up arrow key seems to work fine (it switches to the last matching tab), the first time.
Once you have switched to a tab, the menu loses focus and it is not possible to press arrow keys to switch to the following tabs (like scrolling does).
Also, the Esc key clears the text, which is useful, but it makes more sense that the Esc key closes the menu (and it is more useful, as there is no other way to close the menu by means of the keyboard)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4). 

Fastest Search

little bug? + suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Shouldn't QuickFind be disabled when the menu bar is focused (e.g. after pressing Alt key down and release)? I mean disabled like it is disabled when the location bar is focused ("Alt+d").

Also, it is being difficult to get icons for search engines automatically. Why not instead of providing a link to a favicon, allow choosing an image file locally, or better, input a favicon like in search pluggins, that is, e.g: data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABAAAAAQCAYAAAAf8/9hAAAAo0lEQVQ4je1SsQ3EIAy0xAiZgjXYjDGovqVnhZQgpaBiADJABvBX9tuEiDrSn4QE+Dj7bAD+AJca+txxdu9SQwAAnzuaUNSiGKiDABHlnkS3z/ETMaGgjXUpMFbJcVLbz4sJsuSlgCS71NDGqrwS2cbKFojD1n3u7MuEovYy27SJTxgF6AGJzyYHPvd7l4ce7OelqlNwqXFQTmb8K5RoaeMd+ALa0PVlVUetkwAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==

Sorry if i am getting something wrong, i have just installed it and I am learning how to use it.
Thanks for creating this addon, it makes Firefox so much superior to Chrome

GrabMyBooks

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is more than I could have imagined... brilliant!.
Now, this addon would improve if "My book", "Feeds", "Newspapers", "Grab Tabs" had a url address. That would allow bookmark them, thus enabling access through the address bar, and also, that would fix the incompatibility with "Mozilla Labs: Prospector - LessChrome HD" addon.

aFewClicksAway

so right, but then so wrong Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I find inexplicable is how a brilliant developer able to create such a useful addon moves to Chrome, the only internet browser out there able to compete with IE at which is the browser that sucks the most.
There are plenty of better alternatives to this addon anyways

Tree Style Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The bug with tabs on top seems to have been fixed, probably since Fx4. The autohiding side panel does not work perfectly smooth... but i no longer use that feature much, so this extension is perfect. Immensely useful, yet kept simple. Thanks Piro
